Janet Jackson returned earlier this year with "No Sleeep," a groovy, lusty track put together with the help of her longtime collaborators Jam & Lewis. Interestingly, the singer recruited J. Cole, a rapper not traditionally known as either sensual or groovy, for an official remix of the single. Here the MC plays the absent partner in Jackson's relationship, longing to return home after a long time on the road. Cole's verse references his own hit "Crooked Smile," along with the great Michael Jackson ballad "Butterflies."
